Part 1. What sorts of lessons have you learned from studying partnering pedagogies and the role of technology? Which do you believe were the most important insights you gained?
The greatest lesson I learned from studying partnering pedagogies and the role of technology is understanding the student’s and teacher’s roles. We talked since week one on how the teacher’s role has changed from the sage on the stage to a coach and guide. Not only the teacher’s but the student’s role in the class room changes too in partner pedagogies. I believe that we are in a transition time when the traditional way of conducting a class is morphing into the a 21st century classroom. As time passes those learning professionals (in educators and in corporate) will either make the change through professional development.
It’s was also interesting to view the Web 2.0tools and do a video tutorial. This week Dr. Newby presented the badging program and many of the badges are on the tools that we had worked on.
Part 2. In the same spirit of receiving critical feedback that you have embraced this past week, please share your ideas and provide constructive feedback on how EDCI 56800 can be improved.
The course was very useful and I learned quite a bit but it’s mainly focused on K-12 applications. I hope that the course will evolve to include the working environment. Millennials are in their late 20’s and early 30’s. These are the people who have always had technology in their life since day one (sort of). They are now in the workplace and are even becoming learning professionals. It would be beneficial to include that group in the course and discussion.
Thank you for a great class everyone!
